Muse have revealed that they have 'no concrete plans' regarding what to do now that their six album record deal is up - but they do plan to start work on their next album in 2014.
Warner Bros. Records bought Muse's six album deal from original label Taste Media in 2005 - meaning that The 2nd Law will be their last contracted record with them. Now in a new interview with Billboard, frontman Matt Bellamy said that the band were 'at a crossroads' and planned to take time off to think about where to go from here.
"Early next year I think we'll probably take a break for a few months and at some point next year we'll start writing new music," he said. "I think if everyone is up for it, we'll start recording music sometime next year."
Many believe that Muse are likely to release future music via their own record label, Helium-3. Helium-3 is a sub-division of Warner formed by the band before the release of Blackholes And Revelations.
Meanwhile, Muse are gearing up for the release of their upcoming concert movie, Live At Rome Olympic Stadium. It will be shown in cinemas from 6 November, 2013. See a poster for the film below.
